After the press conference, media picked up on the "accidental" fall and most importantly wanted to test their hands on the durability of the Toughpad themselves soon after, much to the reluctance of the Panasonic booth staff. With the incident being caught online, the durability of the tablet soon also spread virally.

The "Fearless" Toughpad™ A1 will be available in the Spring of 2012 in USA and Japan at first. The 7-inch model, B1 will be later in 2012. Both of them will be sold not at retailers but through authorized Panasonic business & office dealers. You can't wait right!???
